Explore Town of St. George’s
Once Bermuda’s capital city, St. George’s was founded in 1609 and is now a UNESCO world heritage site filled with charming colonial architecture and ambling labyrinth alleyways. To get there, take the public bus from the City of Hamilton (the station is just a ten-minute walk from the hotel) and head east. During your one-hour ride, you’ll pass numerous bays and charming island cottages until you reach Bermuda’s historic town filled with 17th century National Trust properties. Once in St. George’s don’t miss St. Peter’s Church—the oldest Anglican church in the Western Hemisphere—in addition to King’s Square complete with historic Town Hall. Travelers searching for authentic Bermudiana should stop by the Bermuda Perfumery for handmade island scents; the Book Cellar specializing in architectural, historical and cultural books about the island; and the English Sports shop for a pair of Bermuda shorts in all colors of the rainbow.
